Filter tools in the updated CFD software

I can’t seem to find the following filters in the solution fields section of the simulation results:

  • Contour
  • Steam Tracer

I also checked in the “Legacy software” and I still can’t find it. I saw a Youtube Video from 2017 where the person used those filters and I was wondering if they are still available? Id they are, could you please point me to the necessary documentation that shows me how to access and use these filters.

I would really appreciate the assistance.


Here is a link to the YouTube video mentioned above:


A good place to start would be the post-processing tutorial, which gives you an overview of the existing filters:

Note that there is a new post-processor in beta testing right now, so you might as well give it a try!
